Question about Toshiba Televison & Video
My Toshiba 50 inch wide screen HDTV (not LCD) tv, about 5 years old gets a really fuzzy picture when you turn it on after its been off for a while. It takes anywhere from 10-30 mins for it to clear up then after that it seems ok until you turn it off again. Is this a cheap fix? What could the problem be?
If it recovers by itself, yes, it should be a cheap fix. It's most likely bulged/leaky capacitors in the power supply and flyback area. Check all the capacitors, and in my experience if you see a suspicious one it is best to replace all of them in that area, they are cheap and will save you from more serious issues.

Link to a pic so you know what a cap is and how to tell if its bad just buy looking @ it.
the bad ones are in RED and have budged tops and have vented acid(the dark goop on top) the good ones are in blue, but in this pic i would replace all of them.
this happens due to the heat near them........
